Roller blind fitting information:

The brackets supplied with all our roller blinds are suitable for top or face fixing. They are not designed to be side fixed, with the exception of our total blackout roller blind system.

If you have a steel lintel above your window recess, this can normally be drilled through easily using an HSS drill bit on a slow, low torque setting. For really difficult lintels, you can use a tungsten carbide drill bit.

Information for fitting vertical blinds

Our vertical blinds can be top fixed (ideal for a recess fitting) or face fixed (if you’re fitting to the wall or window frame). It is important to decide whether you will top or face fit the blind before you order, as the brackets we supply are different for each method. Once you know how you will fit the blind, you can select the appropriate brackets whilst ordering your blinds.

Classic Bottom Up blind fitting information

Our classic bottom up blinds can be fitted onto the window sill or they can also be face fixed either outside a recess or to the window itself. The most important thing when installing a bottom up blind is that your cords are fitted perfectly square so that the blind runs up and down evenly.
